The Arc de Triomphe stands at the end of the avenue des Champs Elysées at place Étoile – the huge roundabout where 12 tree-lined avenues converge. If you’re into extreme sports you may want to rent a car and take it for a spin around the Arc de Triomphe just to test yourself against Parisian traffic (bear in mind that many travel insurance policies specifically state that you will not be covered if you have an accident on the Étoile roundabout). Napoléon commissioned the arch in 1806, 30 years later it was finished and ready for tourists to gawk at. The best access if from the underground passage on the northern side of avenue des Champs Elysées. You get a pretty good view from the top.

    Positioned in joining 12 avenues just made this special spot merely the center of Paris. Lights from every direction throned this to "golden arc of the world"

    A fabulous monument, however once you're stood next to it, you can also entertain yourself watching the suicidal driving on the road around it. Chaos.

    É o centro de Paris. O triunfo. Um tributo à arquitetura, ao passado, aos heróis e, senhores, que vista! Vale subir cada um dos trocentos degraus...

    Get ready to climb a lot of stairs to the top! The view worth it anyway.

    Better views than the Eiffel tower. It's nice to be lower to the ground. :)

    Paris Museum Pass gets you to the top for free and you can skip the ticket line. There's an elevator for those who physically cannot take the stairs, though there is still about 30 steps to the top.

    Navigating the roundabout feels like you are in a movie. Beautiful architecture and a great view from the top of Baron Haussmann's planning.
